Energy

DMA

Why it's material:

Our facilities and businesses operations consume a range of natural resources and materials. And our business, which is increasingly becoming more digital requires large amounts of electricity.

Eco-efficiency means doing more with less – finding ways to grow our business while reducing our environmental impact. The business case for eco-efficiency is clear. It results in improved business process efficiency, cost savings, and increased customer and employee satisfaction.

Emissions

DMA

Why it's material:

Climate-related impacts are already occurring and will continue for many decades. They have the potential to cause large scale economic disruption. We believe financial institutions can play a role in meeting the 2030 targets by addressing climate-related impacts to their business, while supporting the transition to a low-carbon economy.

Our carbon neutral commitment is the foundation of our support of the low carbon economy.
